John Legend is taking full advantage of his time in self-isolation amid the coronavirus spread, and the crooner hosted a virtual concert via Instagram Live on Tuesday (March 17).
Notably, Legend confirms he has new music coming this year. “Just so you guys know, I am putting out a new album this year,” Legend said. “Everybody’s home, you need stuff, you need music, you need TV, you need films. You need stuff to entertain you, so I’m going to put some music out.”
He added, “We’re going to release some music. I don’t know what the schedule going to be like, we’re just going to start putting stuff out. We’re in the process of mixing a lot of the stuff on the record. Luckily, I already wrote and recorded most of it.”
Amid a number of soothing performances at Legend’s home piano, his wife Chrissy Teigen joined him in a towel and a glass of wine in hand. She also was wearing one of her famous headbands, which led Legend to sing his viral jingle, “Headband of the Day.”
The couple also discussed The Office, Legend sang “All of Me,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and most notably, Teigen couldn’t help by give into her reality TV show obsession by delivering a heartfelt performance of the Vanderpump Rules theme song.

“We gotta love each other. We gotta take care of each other. We gotta help each other. Try not to be selfish,” Legend concluded the live stream.
